Greetings Seibertronians!

way too short for my liking and something just looks off about the robot head. Could see it being reused for seaclamp or ciccadon but doubt they could work combining into it.

I think after watching the review I'm leaning towards passing on this guy. He's mostly solid but I'm just not sold. Maybe if they retool him into sandstorm with the mutant head later on.

I wish there had been a core class comparison, since he's so short maybe he'd be a good opponent to rattrap

Wow - how do some people get these things so dang EARLY? Do they have access to the factory floor or something? The rest of us casual reviewers have to wait for general release - there is no justice! ;)

Almost certainly stolen figures, yes

Pretty sure we’ve gotten several confirmations that this kid does NOT steal these, he’s partnered with Hasbro.

Nope.

Not an agreement with Hasbro, but someone here recently (I apologize I cannot recall at the moment), pointed out a UK website that somehow does obtain toys quite early, and they have sent items to PvP to review before (he has credited them on his reviews), and this is how PvP gets several of them. Some of the more well known (infamous) early reviewers are obtaining questionable factory samples, based on their close proximity to where the toys are being made, but my guess is that PvP's family is financially secure, so he can afford to get the earliest sources and pay insane amounts to get them shipped to him in the UK as quickly as possible.

I mean most of us poor shlubs are living paycheck-to-paycheck so we have to budget our resources to get TF's when they come out, but of the several thousands of us, I'd imagine there are a few more well-off than others, so they get the reviews earlier. I'm not jealous, it gives me a good opportunity to look at something several months in advance.

So you're saying if you had access to stolen figures before others you'd refuse them?

Yeah he got others off In Demand Toys, like Selects Abominus and Volcanicus. I suspect Scorponok here is similar. An early review to build up hype.

Scorponok looks pretty good! I'm still cool with my original, despite being in inaccurate (to the show!) colors, but I would totally pick him up if I didn't.

I'm really only waiting to get bots I don't have yet, like Tigatron! I can't wait to see his voyager -- I'm expecting similar quality as we saw with Dinobot. I know not everyone loved the Kingdom Dinobot -- but he's a helluva lot more of what I wanted than the original toys were, despite their charms. Of course, I'm only referring to Dinobot in bot mode, since I have yet to transform him. ;)

Yup. Some of us have moral standards.

Early releases are weeks, not months before they're on shelves. I've also heard from several sources that he and Ton Ton sell their samples for crazy amounts privately to recoup whatever costs they had. Between the views and the sales, they're doing ok. For the record, Hasbro will never send out figures this early to be reviewed. If they did there's a long list of reviewers who have larger audiences and have a closer relationship to Hasbro than PvP and Ton Ton.

I wish these forums had a like button because this deserves one, sir.

Hasbro won't send figures out...but retailers do ;) which we've seen happen like how In Demand Toys were Shipping SS Overload out a month and a bit in advance of most other places last year. Or how they were mysteriously Shipping Abominus out the same time as pvp dropped a review on him.

Besides sometimes I do question whether someone has stolen from the factory or if Hasbro are being very sneaky and using it as a way to build hype for forthcoming figures, plus they don't have to worry about a reviewer not declaring they got it from hasbro as they can rely on the "thief" angle.

Good to know that you do. But does DeathReviews?

Yes, that was from you. Thank you sir.

There are many examples of toys released in other countries months before they came out in the U.S. It happens often. Last Summer , In Demand got ER Skylynx and Scorponok months before many other places did.

Also for the record, go watch Emgo's review of Selects Black Roritchi. He literally reviewed it the SAME DAY it came up for pre-order on Hasbro Pulse, and he did Credit BBTS & Hasbro for sending him one early. Since he usually is not one of the super-early reviewers it was quite a surprise.

Just curious but how do we know to distinguish Male and female dinosaurs when the reproductive organs are bot preserved? No one knows what a trex penis looks like

Hmm. Scorponok looks good, but that height difference in bot mode is disappointing. I already pre-ordered him, and it's still the best looking version of this character so far, so I'm sticking with him, but I can't lie, not as excited as I was before.

Also looks like the main reason for it is because so much plastic went into his tail :BANG_HEAD:

Wingfinger, being a Pteranodon, isn't a dinosaur, but looking at the somewhat larger clade in Archosauria that includes both dinos and pterosaurs:

Basically, as far as I'm aware, the same way we determine a lot of other stuff about them: looking at the fossil evidence (bones, skin/feather impressions, etc.) and comparing to the same things in their closest living relatives (birds), their much more distant relatives that are still closer related than any other group aside from the aforementioned (crocodilians), and also compare to non-related living animals that are filling similar or the same niches today.

For "dead on" cartoon accuracy, there's always the MP line. For scorponok, is not "show accurate" to a T as much as all the other beast characters were. And that's fine because the line is constant.

This Scorpy is very smol, yes. But he's also BEEFY. Like a stronk manlet. The scroprion look creepy enough and that transformation is certainly creative. I'll be sure to pick him up when he'll come out.
